5 Forbidden Crowns
LK delivers a touching, slow burn romance that will melt your heart. This book has a touch of enemies to lovers, a touch of the forbidden and all the delicious angst. I loved everything about this story from start to finish LK kept me utterly enraptured with Duke and Mally.
When she died, she took the best of me right along with her, leaving a shell of the man I was before.
Duke is one hundred percent book boyfriend material. He is brooding and angry but deep down he will melt your panties with his sweetness not to mention all the tattoo’s (Insert immediate swooning). He goes through something incredibly tragic that wrecks him in a way that many don’t recover from. He closes himself off from love and finding someone, ultimately, he’s just going through the motions of living, without living. It’s heartbreaking to see this beautifully strong man so closed to possibilities. I loved his character so much; his pain was so real and tangible you can feel it pour from the pages. You want to coddle him a little but at the same time when he’s a complete douche to Mallory you want to whack him upside the head.
Mallory’s my own personal brand of torture, and yet, she sparks something to life in me that I thought died with her sister-hope-and that just pisses me off all the more.
I felt so much for Mallory she lived through some epically tragic things that would destroy even the strongest of people. But she persevered, she made it out and made something out of herself. Her strength and compassion even given her childhood are awe inspiring. She has a lot of residual insecurities that she must deal with, but she doesn’t let them stand in her way.
I loved her banter with Duke, their chemistry was instantaneous and can be felt burning through your Kindle. They try to fight their undeniable attraction to each other, but some things cannot be stopped. And their connection is one of them. I simply adored watching them together even in the beginning when Duke was being a jerk, I loved it because you knew that it wasn’t coming from a bad place. Watching what they have mature and grow into something that heals their souls was beautiful to see.
Mallory kisses just like she lives, with all of her heart and soul, and here in this moment, I know she’s claiming a piece of both of mine.
This story will break you heart but in the same moment start putting it back together. Duke and Mally will steal your heart and leave you breathless.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.
After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.
I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.
Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead, she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.
But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?
